Notes

Abstract:
Proposal for Rare Books & Manuscripts Section (RBMS) Conference 2016 in Miami, Florida, for a workshop. Summary: By adding value to digital collections through the use of digital humanities tools, special collections curators and archivists can build upon traditional methods of engagement with the public, scholars, and students. This full-day workshop will explore digital humanities tools for curating digital collections after creation, including collection management, donor development, integration with research and teaching, and adding distinction to born-digital and digitized material. Through lectures, discussion, and hands-on activities, participants will learn which digital humanities tools can be used in special collections libraries and how to apply these tools, techniques, and digital curation activities in their work. Each instructor will discuss a proven practical application of digital humanities techniques in traditional curatorial work that is replicable by others regardless of size of institution, dedicated staff, and supported technologies. This workshop is for curators, librarians, and archivists who manage collections of born-digital and digitized material with a basic understanding of digital collections.
